Success Story: How to Join Your CPG

Community Planning Groups are an important mechanism for determining how the City of San Diego will grow and develop. Circulate San Diego educates and encourages committed individuals to participate in the City’s Community Planning Groups by regularly hosting How to Join Your Community Planning Group forums across San Diego. Visit our resources page to learn more about how to get involved in your Community Planning Group.

Randy Wilde ran for his Community Planning Group after attending our forums, and he succeeded in getting elected to the North Park Planning Committee in March! The following is a guest blog post by Randy Wilde, North Park Planning Committee member.

Speaking to current CPG members gave me a better idea of how to get the word out and what to expect if I was successfully elected.
